Feces collected from each animal (1-3 g) were stored in 15 mL of 10% formalin and analyzed in the laboratory using methods for endoparasites
diagnostics: flotation in sugar solution (density 1.27), sedimentation and centrifugation with formol-ether (Bowman, 1999).
The presence of gastrointestinal endoparasites
in the species S.
The aggregate pattern observed for the endoparasite
found in animals in the present study are mostly reported to cause subclinical infections in dormice, with Eimeria spp.
Other important risk factors associated with endoparasites
in dogs from different urban areas resulted to be both animal age and their sharing the same house with other dogs.
Use of salt blocks in mangers, vaccination, drenching against endoparasite
and hay making were perceived to be medium, tending towards high, with rank orders 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th, respectively.
The main goal of this study was to examine the effect of this tropical endoparasite
on female mice odor preference.
is carried by mosquitoes and affects both dogs and cats?
Further, a bird's ability to defend a territory on a lek has been shown in grouse to be related to body condition, or the ability to maintain body condition, or both (Hupp and Braun, 1989), while endoparasite
loads have been reported to have a negative effect on body condition (Wetmore, 1939; Hoglund et al., 1992).
Similarly, the ascidian endoparasite
Gonophysema gullmarensis Bresciani and Liitzen, 1960 shows highly abbreviated developmental stages, with one lecitrophic nauplius, one copepodid, an onychopodid (a reduced preadult larva), and adults (Bresciani and Lutzen 1961).
